Orange Goblin Set June Release For “The Wolf Bites Back”, Debut “Sons Of Salem”


Orange Goblin‘s new song “Sons Of Salem” has made its way online. The band’s vocalist Ben Ward had the following to say of it:

“‘Sons Of Salem‘ is the first track on the album and we consider it an Orange Goblin anthem. We see this song being a staple of the live set with the singalong chorus and the awesome, catchy riff. A mean and moody intro to the album that sets the tone throughout, it’s short, sweet and straight to the point. The lyrics are about the sons of the Salem witches returning from the grave to seek vengeance on the religious fools that murdered their mothers during the witch trials.”

Orange Goblin‘s new album “The Wolf Bites Back” is headed for a June 15th release on Universal/Candlelight Records/Spinefarm. The cover art for it was done by Roland Scriver, with Ward stating of it:

“We wanted something dark, menacing, striking and memorable all at once and we feel that Roland has certainly delivered that. We think it has the look of an iconic cover, one that you will recognize for years to come and one that perfectly represents the music on the record.

The wolf is such an amazing beast. The wolf is predatory, vicious and a merciless hunter but at the same time so determined, smart, cunning and beautiful and the portrayal of the wolf about to strike on the cover is a great representation of the way we felt when writing this album.”

Pre-orders for the album, which the band recorded at Orgone Studios with Jamie ‘Gomez’ Arellano (Ghost, Grave Pleasures) can be found at this location.
